Charlie's work throughout the sale of our property went far and beyond our expectations. He ensured the whole process was as smooth as possible and worked tirelessly throughout. Even on his day off, if something pressing came up, he was there to sort it out. He put 200% effort in to the whole process, which made everything so easy for us. We are extremely grateful to him and would recommend him to any buyer or seller....

They seem to be as low as you can get, so for the brilliant service they give, their fees are good.

As a purchaser I have two very important comments to make. One is towards Village Estates in general and the other is for Liz Payne. Serena Parker handled the initial discussion. I made an offer and when the time came to negotiate - I just loved how honest and transparent she was and how clear she made everything sound. This, I believe, is the trademark of Village Estates. Never once in the entire process of purchase did I ever feel unsure or out of loop or anxious. I never felt that somethin...

I am very pleased with Village Estates and in particular with Brett and Liz. Brett initially valued our house and negotiated the fee. He also is a talented photographer which made our listing stand out. Later in the process Liz took over and kept us up to date with the progress. Everyone at VE is professional and personable and I appreciate the time they take to make sure everyone is one the same page. From start to finish the sale took just over 2 months which is fantastic. We have used VE thre...

The fee was negotiated at the start and was competitive overall. I believe they are worth their fee and didn't begrudge paying it.

Having recently sold our house using Village Estates, we would wholeheartedly recommend their service to you. We were particularly impressed by how the whole team took us through the process of selling, which we greatly appreciated as we hadn't moved in 25 years. They were all a pleasure to work with and very happy to offer advice and support when we needed it. Initially we met with Brett to market the property. He was honest about the value and gave us confidence in the service they could offer...

Our first meeting was with Brett who gave us an honest appraisal of our home and gave advice on decluttering and making the house look its best for the photos. Village Estates got lots of viewings for us and Serena was in almost daily contact giving us updates and feedback from viewings. Once the property was sold we were impressed with the way Liz progressed the sale either through chasing solicitors or keeping us and our buyer informed of progress to date. My advice would be not to go for t...

Charlie did a very good job of marketing my home in Eltham. He was able to find a nice young Family. Charlie, Serena and Debbie were able to find the perfect maisonette for my Son Austin. We are both busy putting our own stamp on our properties. As we are just down the road from each other it is all very good. Thank you. Liz was most helpful it the later stages of all the negotiations which could be very stressful. A very big thank you....

We have dealt with Village Estates twice over the last 6 years and found them to be excellent. Our most recent Sale / Purchase wasn't straight forward however everything was always dealt with very professionally. Charlie and Liz were our main points of contact and both were always quick to respond to queries and operated in an upfront and honest manner. Due to the length of time our chain took to complete we spoke with most members of staff at the Sidcup office and cannot fault the service we re...

Brett and the office guys were always available and friendly but the star award has to go to Charlie Painter who helped me through every stage of my sale in a professional, efficient and polite manner. I especially appreciated being kept up to date and the advice given about my sale price and structure of my open viewing day was absolutely spot on. Village Estates managed my sale perfectly.

Can't speak highly enough of Charlie, Liz and the rest of the team in the Sidcup branch. Professional in every aspect from start to finish. They proved to be worthy of marketing our large Victorian property where other agents had failed. Thank you Village Estates and we highly recommend you to anyone thinking of selling their property, your number one in Sidcup....

From start to finish we were highly impressed with Village Estates. We invited several local estate agents to complete valuations of our property and chose Village Estates because of Charlie's charisma and demeanour. He gave us every confidence that he knew exactly what he was talking about and provided us with a fair and realistic valuation of our property. He was very thorough in every aspect of his role and got the property on the market quickly. Viewings were set up conveniently for both par...

From day 1 Charlie has been incredibly helpful, we would certainly not have found our new home and had an offer accepted without his help and assistance. My husband and I both found him very professional yet also friendly and down to earth. Liz has also been extremely helpful, keeping us updated each step of the way. What is known as a stressful time was pretty plain sailing and I'm sure this was due to constant communication which we really appreciated. Thank you again Charlie & Liz! : )...

Village estates provided an excellent service from valuation through to completion. Much thought was given to generating interest in my house and marketing it at the correct price by Charlie. Brett then developed the sales particulars and presented the best aspects of my home. An open day was organised and I was delighted with the level of interest and price achieved. The sale progressed smoothly and quickly despite the market slowing down. I would not hesitate to use Village Estates again and ...

Charlie was very helpful in the initial stages as we had not moved for 25 years. He was very reassuring. His photos showed the house in a good light. We were disappointed with the open house as we only had 3 viewers. However one viewer bought the house! Liz's service as sales progresser was excellent. She kept on top of our sale and purchase and advised us regularly. She also helped us by liaising regularly with the solicitors. Overall we have been really pleased with the service. Thank you....

Very professional and realistic valuation. The fees were negotiable. Good advice on making a decision when we had 2 buyers bidding against each other rather than letting the situation escalate. Got the property on the market and on websites very quickly. Looking back I think the sales progression was good even though in the middle of the transaction it sometimes seems like nothing is happening or things are happening slowly....

I bought my house through Village Estates. I dealt initially with Charlie and on occasion with Liz. From start to finish they were professional and friendly. Though I was aware they were acting on behalf of their client, their service to me as a buyer was exemplary: I was kept fully updated and they showed great industry in keeping the chain moving and advising me on the necessary steps to completion. They made a sometimes stressful process as stress free as they could. I would warmly recomm...

Recently sold my property through Village Estates (Sidcup). Extremely pleased with the service I received from start to finish. Liz, the progressor was spot on with updates and was always available to speak to. It certainly pays to go with quality rather than quantity. No stress or concerns, total commitment of service from all staff throughout. Thank you !...

I contacted Village Estates regarding a valuation of my property due to them listing another property I was interested in. Charlie came round within the agreed time slot and gave a good valuation with justification around it. We missed out on the property we were interested in but Charlie mentioned another property which he had valued but not yet marketed so we arranged to view and ultimately proceeded to purchase and have now moved in. Village arranged an open day for our property on a Saturday...
